Mitie has picked up the Diversity Award at the annual British Insurance Awards ceremony recently held at the Royal Albert in London. A completely new category, the Diversity Award was introduced this year to recognise the work of organisations going above and beyond to inspire and bring about a positive change within the insurance space.
Celebrated for over 20 years, the awards have attracted entries from some of the insurance sector's leading organisations across 26 categories.
Finalists alongside Mitie in the Diversity Award category included AIG UK, Inclusion@Lloyd's, the Chartered Insurance Institute, Weightmans, and Zurich Insurance.
Lee Sadowski, director of Mitie's property solutions business, said: “We are absolutely delighted to have won this year's Diversity Award and would like to thank the BIA and the judges for recognising our passion and commitment towards encouraging diversity in business and the wider community. Mitie Property Solutions is a relatively new business in the insurance sector but I believe we bring a fresh perspective to service delivery for our clients. Our people are from all walks of life with a wide range of experiences and we try to harness this to provide our claimants with a personable, first class service that is reflective of today's diverse society.”
